I've decided I'm not going to do a bracket this year as I will be away for the 2nd round, 3rd round, Sweet 16, and Elite 8.  I will probably watch the Final 4 and National Championship.  I just don't have time this week to put together a bracket.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Nah.  WVU has been crap.  Gonzaga loses to OSU, but not WVU.

Its going to be a defacto home game for WVU, and a long flight from Spokane.  These have factored into upsets before.

Despite being a huge Jayhawker, I'm playing it safe and having Kentucky over Kansas in the title game.

Some upsets I'm currently contemplating:
- Montana over Wisconsin
- Texas over Cincinnati
- Davidson over Louisville
- Long Beach over New Mexico

The winner of New Mexico-Long Beach St. will make it to the Elite Eight.   Both are senior teams with great rebounding and defense, much like Butler and VCU last year.  It's a shame they are playing each other in the first round.

UNC should win it, but I swear the players don't care enough to. I've never seen such an unfocused, talented team.

Typically the seeds are upset about 20-25% of the time in the first week of the tournament. But with no upsets in the first eight games, there's some catching up to do if the tournament is to fall within usual statistics.
